It is a very sad state of affairs that no Indian Institute has featured in the top 150 ranks of the 13th edition of the Quackquarelli Symonds World University Rankings 2016-17. The only Indian Institute that was close to the 150 ranks was Institute of Science, Bangalore with a rank of 152. However, this rank had also gone down from last year’s position of 147.
Indian Institute of Technology- Delhi was at 185 against 179 last year.
IIT-Bombay (219), IIT-Madras (249), IIT-Kanpur (302), IIT-Kharagpur (313) and IIT-Roorkee (399) and IIT- Guwahati (481-490) also featured in the list.
The rankings of all Indian Institutes went down in comparison to last year’s ranking, except that of IIT- Madras.
